Mists of Pandaria releases September 25

Mists of Pandaria releases September 25
Hard to argue with the official announcement right on the EU page and the US page: Mists of Pandaria, the fourth expansion for World of Warcraft, will be available in stores and online starting Tuesday, Sept. 25. Pre-orders are live now.

Sept. 25 is a Tuesday, which is one of the preferred days for patching and other fun. The release date is a bit later than many expected, but Blizzard operates under the philosophy of "it's done when it's done," so a later date only means we're getting a product that's been through a lot of testing.

You can upgrade to the standard edition and digital deluxe edition through your account page now.

Update 9:30 p.m. EDT: Added the official press release announcing the release date. You can view it after the break.

Mists of Pandaria Beta: New collector's edition pet and mount uncovered

Mists of Pandaria Beta New collector's edition pet and mount uncovered
The latest beta build for Mists of Pandaria has uncovered the name of the potential Collector's Edition pet and possible mount as well. The enterprising folks over at Wowhead dug up the latest info from the build, including a change to the placeholder MoP CE pet and MoP CE mount spells. The pet has been updated to a Lucky Quilen Cub, and the mount has been updated to an Imperial Quilen, which changes depending on your riding skill. Please note, these are still labeled as placeholders, so they may not be in the final product.

Although we haven't seen any potential models for either of these creatures, the quilen are the lion-like companions of the mogu, one of the villainous races of the new expansion. You can see what the quilen look like in the screencap above. As with just about every new creature I run into in Pandaria, I pretty much wanted to throw a saddle on this thing from the first moment I laid eyes on it, so needless to say, I'm happy with the choice.

I didn't really need any more convincing to get the Collector's Edition of Mists of Pandaria. Frankly, the soundtrack pieces I've heard plus the potential of a new art book were more than enough to snag my interest. But the possibility of both a pet and a mount have sealed the deal, so to speak.

Edit: Wowhead has now updated their post with a 3D rendition of the model for the mount. Please note, there are no textures for the mount as of yet, but you can get an idea of how the armor sits on it, anyway!

It's open warfare between Alliance and Horde in Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft's next expansion. Jump into five new levels with new talents and class mechanics, try the new monk class, and create a pandaren character to ally with either Horde or Alliance. Look for expansion basics in our Mists FAQ, or dig into our spring press event coverage for more details!
